    What an excellent presentation. It was clear, concise, informative and prescient. It has given me new insight and understanding to Mises' praxeology. Thank you.

    Can they be reconciled? I think Ms. Achtman wishes they can be, even though she very astutely notes the behavioralists have erred in their anthropological premises. Without a re-evaluation and correction of their fundamentals, praxeology and behavioralism will never meet. I believe that praxeology will eventually eclipse the behavioralists as it contains more truth.
